NOTES
  • LMDE uses rolling updates; so once installed it becomes current version each time it is updated.
Use linuxmint-debian-201101-gnome-dvd-i386.iso older versions (including torrents) were bad
  • Make USB Installer Stick

We actually made the ISO compatible with unetbootin so you may have more luck there. http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

Notes for Installation on VirtualBox 4.0

Use gparted on Live DVD to format the 8-10 GB VirtualBox HD
/boot ext4 500 /7000 ext4 swap=balance
Install to HD
edit partitions to format as ext4 and as /boot; /; and swap
Finish installation and reboot
  • Note this same procedure works to install to a 8 GB USB disk

How to write to USB disk
Download to desktop
Use "mount command to see USB address: ie: /dev/sdb; /dev/sdc; /dev/sdd....etc
Or use gparted to see USB address
dd command is VERY DANGEROUS; if you use wrong address you will distroy your Hard Drive with no warning.
In root terminal #:
cd Desktop
dd if=linuxmint-debian-201101-gnome-dvd-i386.img of=/dev/sd(x)

How to Make a 2 GB Installer USB disk

Use the 32 bit version to make a 32 bit USB disk and 64 bit to make 64 bit USB disk
